ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 



The acreage, yield, production, monthly, and season average value, and crop 
value statistics In this bulletin are official State and USDA estimates prepared by the 
Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The county and area detail in these statis- 
tics were made possible by the participation of the Department of Agricultural Ec- 
onomics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. Market price quota- 
tions and shipment statistics are from the Market News Section and the USDA Con- 
sumer and Marketing Service. 

Agencies in the Florida Department of Agriculture providing basic data used 
in developing statistics in this summary include the Road Guard Section, Division 
of Inspection; State Markets Section, Florida Celery Committee, and Sweet Corn 
Advisory Committee, Division of Marketing, the Plant Inspection Section, Division 
of Plant Industry and the South Florida Vegetable Exchange. County Agents of Flor- 
ida's Agricultural Extension Service were very helpful in supplying information on 
vegetable production in their counties. 

Growers, shippers, processors, sales agencies, and transportation firms 
voluntarily supplied much of the data used in developing these official statistics. 
This public spirited cooperation is appreciated.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



This bulletin contains detailed data on acreage, 
yield and production for only the past 3 seasons. Prior 
years can be obtained from the 1969 or earlier bulletins. 

A change in the definitions of harvested acreage, 
yield and production is the reason for the short series. 
Accurate estimates of acreage actually abandoned and re- 
duced yields due to low prices or other economic factors 
are difficult to prepare. Quantity actually sold has the 
greatest significance, therefore, this is now the basis for 
yield and production estimates. Estimates of economic 
abandonment will still be made but entered in footnotes. 

In the 3-year series harvested acreage, yield and 
production relate only to production actually marketed. 
Estimates for the earlier vears in this series will be re- 
vised and included in a future publication. Those needing 
comparable historic production data can obtain them from 
columns labeled "quantity sold" in earlier publications. 

SEASONAL GROUPS — Seasonal estimates are made 
for most of Florida's vegetable, melon, potato, and straw- 
berry crops to show supplies for a shorter period of time 
than the entire marketing season. The seasonal classifi- 
cation used for each of Florida' s crops is shown on the ad- 
jacent page along with usual planting and harvesting dates. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which 
has been planted for harvest during one designated season. 
To avoid duplication, acreage lost and replanted to the 
same crop in time for harvest, in the same season.is count- 
ed only once. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage actually 
harvested or partially harvested. Acreage lost before or 
at maturity through natural causes is not included in the 
acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the average production of merchantable 
quality harvested and sold or utilized per acre. 

PRODUCTION includes the quantity actually har- 
vested and sold or utilized. 



ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT is thai portion of the 
crop that reached maturity and was of merchantable quality 
but was not harvested because of labor shortages, low 
prices or other economic factors, or if harvested, was not 
sold or utilized for those reasons. 

UNIT VA LUE for production sold on the fresh mar- 
ket represents the F. O. B. price received or its equivalent 
for all grades and quality of the commodity including sell- 
ing charges. Unit value for quantities sold to processors 
represent prices paid on a delivered to the processing plant 
door basis and includes transportation cost. etc. 

TOTAL VALUE is the value of production sold. It 
excludes economic abandonment, cullage, and any portion 
of a crop not harvested. 

RAIL - TRUCK shipments are included in the 
straight rail shipments shown for each crop. 

RAIL LOAD FACTORS — Represents the average 
number of packages per rail car based on tabulation of 
way-bills in prior years showing the contents of each car. 

MLXED CARS (RAIL) — Loadings by stations are 
pro-rated by commodities reported and tabulated in recent 
years. About 2 percent of the total equivalent carlots of 
vegetables and potatoes moved in this category in 1969-70. 

TRUCK SHIPMENTS are converted to equivalent 
carlots on the basis of a predetermined load factor. A 
minor difference of carlot equivalents in the season total 
obtained by adding the monthly or weekly shipments may 
exist because of rounding. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT -- The official 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weigh! 
basis. For this bulletin, the official estimates for most 
vegetable crops have been converted to the most commonly 
used container. The following table gives the net weighi 
used per container and the number of containers per hun- 
dredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1969-70 VEGETABLE SEASON 



The value of Florida grown vegetables, melons, 
:atoes, and strawberries at $256, 857, 000 was down 9 
percent from that of the previous season. Productionfrom 
the 408, 650 acres planted was down 15 percent. Some 
commodities were in very light supply at certain times of 
the year. Since the planted acreage was down less than 
one percent, the reason for the lighter production had to 
be attributed to other forces. Loss of acreage was greater 
in 1969-70 than the previous year. The 364, 345 acres es- 
timated harvested compared with 375,410 the previous 
year. 

Tomatoes continued to lead all other items in value 
of production; yet this crop's total value was nearly 30 
percent less than the crop of the previous season. Acre- 
age harvested for fresh market was almost the same as 
the previous year. However, production was down 24 per- 
cent and the average price received per unit was 8 percent 
less than the previous season. 

Other commodities, normally abundant, were so 
scarce at times that some all-time highs in per-unit price 
were received. These highlights can be observed more 
readily from the data summarized in this bulletin regard- 
ing these various commodities. 

Economic factors of planning the crop — financial 
arrangements, varieties to be planted, etc. — were of 
necessity made preliminary to the actual planting opera- 
tion. Land preparation was often well in advance of actual 
seeding. Seedbeds went in for planting the new season's 
crop before harvest for the prior season was complete. 
Celery and eggplant seedbeds, in particular, were planted 
for late July and early August transplanting. By Septem- 
ber 1, 964 acres of celery were reported transplanted, 
compared to 1,228 acresthe previous season; 5, 330 acres 
of sweet corn had been planted, compared to 4, 750 acres 
the previous season; and 10, 750 acres of tomatoes had been 
planted, compared with 11,210 in 1968. Most fall pepper 
and eggplant had also been planted. 

Since weather is such a controlling factor of vege- 
table production, a resume of the highlights is presented. 
Cold, wet weather characterized the 1969-70 fall-winter 
season. The 58 cold nights (minimum temperatures 36°F 
or lower) in the Peninsula were exceeded only in 8 pervious 
seasons. Abnormally cold temperatures and above normal 
rainfall combined to adversely affect agricultural pro- 
duction during most of the fall-winter season. Rainfall 
was exceptionally heavy during September and October. 

Temperatures averaged 3 to 4 degrees below sea- 
sonal normal throughout peninsular Florida during Novem- 
ber. Frost or freezing temperatures occurred over North 
and Central Interior districts on the 15th and 16th. The 
ielow-normal trend continued with December averaging 



3 to 5 degrees below normal throughout the Peninsula. 
Rainfall, however, was generally 2 to 4 degrees above 
normal over North and Central districts and nearly 2 
inches above in the Everglades. The Lower East Coast 
was 1/2 to 1-1/2 inches below normal. Growth of crops 
continued to be retarded. 

In January an outbreak of artic air on the 7th en- 
gulfed the State and brought four mornings of freezing 
temperatures to most distr icts. Long durations of temper- 
atures of 23°Fand lower caused tender vegetables to suffer 
significant damage, heaviest of which occurred on the 
mornings of the 10th and 11th. Cold weather persisted the 
remainder of January such that averages were 4 to 8 de- 
grees below the seasonal normal. Rainfall again exceeded 
normal with amounts up to 2 inches above the monthly norm. 

February was also cold and wet. Scattered frost 
occurred over North and Central districts on the 4th, 5th 
and 27th. Rainfall was 2 to 5 inches above normal in the 
Northern districts, 3 inches above normal Central, and 
near 1 inch above normal Southern districts. 

The final frost of the season occurred on the 15th 
of March. Rainfall during March ranged nearly 5 inches 
above normal over the Peninsula. An area generally from 
Punta Gorda-Naples on the southwest Coast to Stuart and 
Ft. Lauderdale on the east coast, received abnormally 
heavy rainfall during the 3-day period of March 25-28. 
Rainfall amounts ranged from 12 to 18 inches and adversely 
affected agricultural production. Some losses were very 
heavy, particularyly in Ft. Myers potatoes. 

April through mid-May was a period of six consec- 
utive weeks with little or no rain. The drouth was broken 
with shower activity starting May 17, bringing needed rain- 
fall to South and Central Florida areas. The rainy season 
for South Florida and Central areas continued, with the 
drouth breaking in the extreme west Panhandle the last 
week of May with Pensacola reporting 5 inches of rain. 

Shower}' weather prevailed the first week of June. 
Rainfall totals were generally 1-1/2 to 3 inches, except 
excessive amounts were again received in the Panhandle. 
Pensacola reported 14-1/2 inches, and over 20 inches was 
reported unofficially in some areas of West Florida; how- 
ever, these areas were not heavy producers of spring 
vegetables. 

Production of vegetables in Florida has reached the 
point where some phase of activity is underway throughout 
the year. 

Data on temperatures and rainfall were supplied 
by ESSA and the Frost Warning Service.

SNAP BEANS 
1969-70 



Florida produced an estimated 3,296,000 bushels of 
bush and pole beans for fresh market during the 1969-70 
season. This was somewhat below the 4,391,000 bushels 
produced the previous crop year. The smaller production 
soldvery well and averaged $5. 09 per bushel, an increase 
of 31 percent over the previous year's average. 

To prevent disclosure of major contractor or firm's 
acreages of beans utilized in processing, that portion of the 
crop is not published. 

Southeast Florida is traditionally the principal area 
of bush and pole bean production. This was again true. Bush 
beans grown in Broward and Palm Beach Counties accounted 
for 49 percent of the 1969-70 production. In Dade County 
1 , 131 , 000 bushels of pole beans were harvested from 4 , 990 
acres,making this the outstanding area of pole bean produc- 
tion for the State. 

Early harvest of Gadsden County pole beans was in- 
terrupted by heavy rainfall in late September. Although 
damage was general, light supplies continued until mid- No- 
vember. Seeding of pole beans began in early September in 
the Dade County area. Harvest began in late October and 
continued until May. Strong wind whipped vines and cold 



weather retarded growth during the midwinter months. 
Volume was light until mid-March and then began to 
crease. 

Harvest of bush beans got underway in North and 
West Florida about mid-October. After mid- December 
harvest was confined to the Lower East Coast until spring. 
Freezing temperatures, January 10-11 didgeneral damage 
to the winter crop. Some locations of the Dade-Pompa.': 
area reported 32 degrees or less for ten hours. Heavy r c in- 
fall plagued the area through its early growing period. The 
winter crop never really recovered and supplies were very 
light during January, February and into March. By thee- d 
of April , spring harvestwas getting underway in Central a id 
North producing areas . 

Volume supplies continued into late May, then de- 
clined until harvest was completed in late June. 

Mechanical harvesting of bush varieties has become 
increasingly popular the past several years. It is now eco- 
nomically possible to harvest fields which could not be har- 
vested by hand. This generally reduced loss of acreage and 
also reduced yields.

CABBAGE 
1969-70 



A record- setting $15,927,000 crop of Florida 
cabbage was sold during the 1969-70 season, an increase 
of 38 percent over that of the previous season. Production 
at 5,846,000 equivalent bags and crates was no record, 
being 28 percent less than that of the previous season. 
Yields were down rather sharply from those of the more 
recent years. The 350-bag/crate yield was the first below 
420 in the last 5 years. Hybrid seed has been credited 
with producing higher yields per acre. 

Last season's low yield was due to excessive rain 
during much of the earlier growing period, particularly 
September and October, coupled with low temperatures of 
long duration January 8-11, and subsequent but less severe 
weather later. Root systems were damaged by the early 
rains, and weakened plants became susceptible to disease. 
Head size was generally smaller than desired. Black rot 
was prevalent in heads in many areas, and in combination 
with the small size, reduced production to the 350-crate 
average yield. 

Hastings led all areas in acreage planted. (account- 
ing for 48 percent of the planted acreage^as well as in pro- 
duction. North Central plantings made up 24 percent of the 
total planted. Production was even less, estimated at 21 



percent of the State total. Planting by both seeding and 
transplanting continued later in the season than in other 
areas. Cabbage was set as late as March 10, with 
possibly a few acres being set later. Yields for the North 
Central area were below the State average. 

West Central yields were variable. Manatee County 
yields topped all counties of the State. Quality was gener- 
ally very good. 

The Everglades muckland acreage was seeded and 
some acreage transplanted as crops were thinned. There 
has been a considerable exodus into nearby sandland soils 
in the more recent years for improved quality. Much of 
the nearby sand production is marketed through Everglades 
area sales outlets. 

Shipments were heaviest in March and April. 
Prices declined in April and continued at the lower level 
during much of May. 

The 1969-70 cabbage producing season exemplifies 
an economic axiom of supply and demand. Less acreage 
planted (7 percent), lower yield (24 percent), less pro- 
duction marketed (28 percent), sold for 38 percent more 
money, compared to the 1968-69 producing season.

CANTALOUPS 
1969-70 



Florida's cantaloup production was estimated to 
have increased 17 percent over that of the previous year. 
Acres harvested remained the same as the previous season 
at 1,200 acres. Yields increased to 70 hundredweight per 
acre from 60 lastyear. Total cropvalue increased 4 per- 
cent to 8571,000. Value per unit decreased almost 11 per- 
cent from the S 7. 80 of the previous season to S6. 80 in 1970. 

North Florida produced 33 percent of the total crop 



on 33 percent of the harvested acres. The Southwest sector 
produced 20 percent of the crop. 

Rain occurring late in May caused some damage in 
the Ft. Myers-Tmm okalee and West Central areas. How- 
ever, this rain was- very beneficial to the North Florida 
crop. Harvest was complete in the Ft. Myers -Imm okalee 
area in late June and continued into J11I3' in North Florida.

CELERY 
1969-70 



The gross value of Florida celery during 1969-70 
was $24,952,000 compared to $24,986,000 the previous 
year. The average value per crate was $3. 73 for the 
1969-70 season, an increase of 43 cents from the 1968-69 
average. Growers planted 12,900 acres compared to 
12, 800 the previous year. 

This crop was grown exclusively in three areas. 
The Everglades was the principal area of production. Sup- 
plies were available from early November through mid- 
June. The other producing areas were Central Florida 
and Sarasota. Cutting began at Zellwood in early Novem- 
ber and was terminated in late December. Harvest started 
again in mid-April and continued into June. The sandland 
crop at Sanford was harvested primarily during February 
and March. Harvest from Oviedo mucklands started in 
mid-January and continued through June. Harvest at Sar- 
asota was primarily during January, February and March, 



but light production continued through May. Celery in the 
Island Grove area is grown in the muckland soils of Alachua 
County. A small planted acreage for the 1969-70 season 
in this area was lost when a dike broke and flooded the 
fields. Planting was not resumed during the season. 

All celery passed was lost due to natural causes 
and had been planted to harvest during the spring season. 
Most losses are attributed to cold temperatures during the 
midwinter months which caused premature bolting. Ex- 
cessive rain during the spring also resulted in some loss 
of acreage. 

The Florida Fresh Fruit Exchange administers the 
celery marketing order. Their field supervisors provided 
planting, harvesting and production data. In cooperation, 
S. R. S. assembled these data into weekly and monthly re- 
ports to the participating industry.

SWEET CORN 
1969-70 



Florida growers marketed 9,388,000 crates of 
sweet corn during the 1969-70 season. This was a 10 per- 
cent decrease from the 10,426 , 000 crates marketed the pre- 
vious year. However, the value of sales for the 1969-70 
season only increased to $26,868,000, less than one per- 
cent more than the $26,660,000 value of the 1968-69 sea- 
son's production. The average value per crate was $2. 86 
compared to $2. 56 the previous crop year. - ■ 

Of the 65,400 acres planted, 56,900 acres were 
harvested. This is 1 percent more planted and harvested 
than the previous crop year. 

The crop for fall harvest was grown almost exclu- 
sively in the Everglades muckland. Planting began in Au- 
gust. Although almost daily showers did moderate damage, 
harvest got underway October 9. Unharvested plantings 
sustained frostburn the last of November but a moderate 
supply was available until January 10- 11 , when below freez- 
ing temperatures of 7 to 13 hours duration severely damaged 
the remainder with most of it a complete loss. 



Winter supplies came primarily from the Pompano 
and Dade County areas. Damage from the early January 
freeze was extensive in these areas also. Mostwinter sup- 
plies from the Ft. Myers-Immokalee areas were salvaged 
for local market. 

The Everglades area came into spring harvest in 
mid-April with supplies through most of June. Recurring 
spring rains made spray programs hard to maintain. Some 
fields were completely lost. 

Seeding started at Zellwood in early March. Har- 
vest started in late May. Volume supplies were available 
most of June. Seasonal rains were adversely affective with 
some acreage never harvested. 

Other minor producing areas are located in West 
Central, North and extreme West Florida. Harvest from 
these areas was in the spring months . County acreages are 
not shown as this would constitute a disclosure of individual 
operations .

CUCUMBERS 
1969-70 



Florida fresh cucumber production decreased to 
2,610,000 bushels during the 1969-70 season, down 7 per- 
cent from that of 1968-69. Harvested acres were down 
nearly 12 percent, but yields increased 5 percent. Value 
per unit averaged $3. 93 per bushel and the total crop value 
was $10,249,000. This is a sharp decline of 16 percent be- 
low value of production the previous season. 

Cucumbers are especially adaptable to Florida's 
sandy soils and are grown in all the vegetable areas except 
the mucklands. The southwest counties, or the Ft. Myers - 
Immokalee area, grew 39 percent of the State's harvested 
acreage. About 23 percent of the production came from 
this area. The West Central area (mainly Wauchula) grew 
nearly 20 percent of the harvested acreage and produced 33 
percent of the State's production. 



Early fall harvest started in September. Light sup- 
plies continued until January. Shipments from early Jan- 
uary until mid- April were mostly imports. Heavy rains in 
September and October adversely affected the fall crop in 
many areas. Cold winds in November lowered plant con- 
dition in the Ft. Myers -Immokalee area. Harvest of the 
spring crop began in April. Supplies were heaviest from 
late April until early June. The North and North Central 
areas were in declining supply through June. These areas 
grew both fall and spring table stock and pickles. 

Pickles moved into fresh (O'nite dill) channels and 
into regular pickle processing. Pickle cucumbers (other 
than O'nite dill) are estimated separately and are excluded 
from these data, but are included in miscellaneous vege- 
tables.

EGGPLANT 
1969-70 



Florida's eggplant production decreased 22 percent 
from the previous crop year to 752,000 bushels. Yields 
decreased to 376 bushels per acre from the 437 of the pre- 
vious crop year. The average value per bushel at $3. 62 
with the decreased production reduced the total value of 
sales 16 percent to $2,722,000. 

Eggplant was shipped from Florida every month of 
the 1969-70 season with peak movement in November and 
June. The heaviest volume came from the Pompano area 
with lesser quantities, fall and spring, from other areas. 
Imports moving through Florida channels were reported 
during January, February and March. These are included 
in the table showing distribution of recorded shipments 
from Florida. 

Harvest of "eggs" in the Webster area was under- 
way in September. Most other areas beganharvest in Oc- 
tober. Fall "eggs" were in good, steady supply from 



early November until early February. Spring "eggs" were 
in good supply from mid-April through June. 

Adverse weather in late September and early Octo- 
ber caused root damage to plants in the Pompano and North 
Central areas. The freeze of January 10-11 burned fruit 
and top foliage on plants in the Pompano area. In the Ft. 
Myers-Immokalee area, a small acreage was completely 
killed. Seedbeds in the West Central area sustained rather 
heavy losses. 



The Pompano area is the only source of Florida 
winter supplies. A considerable amount of winter acreage 
in this area was abandoned because of poor market. Im- 
ports into the U. S. have increased sharply. Harvest of 
spring "eggs" was activated northward from Pompano into 
the Wauchula, Plant City, North and North Central areas, 
respectively, as crops in these areas matured.

ESCAROLE 
1969-70 



Escarole and chicory (endive) production in Florida 
during the 1969-70 season was estimated at 3, 168, 000 
crates compared with 3,212,000 the previous year. The 
8, 100 acres planted was 100 acres more than the 1968-69 
season. Average FOB value per crate was $1. 72 of $0. 11 
below the previous year. 

Escarole and chicory were again grown primarily 
in muck soils. Harvest began in late October and continued 
into June. March and April are usually peak months of 
shipments, but were relatively steady November through 
May in 1969-70. The Everglades was the principal source 
of supply with 72 percent of the planted acreage and 75 
percent of the State's production. Seeding began in early 
September. By early October thinning of oldest plantings 
was underway. Light harvest began in late October. Rain 



during the fall months interrupted harvest and made plant- 
ing and spray programs hard to maintain. January's cold 
temperatures did only minor damage, mostly limited to 
leaf tip burn. Rain again in March damaged the crop and 
lowered quality. A seasonal decline in supply began in 
late April but light harvest continued through May. 

Zellwood is the second area of importance in pro- 
duction with two periods of heavy supply. The first period 
began in late October and started to decline in early De- 
cember. The second period of heavy production began in 
early April, increased to volume by late April and con- 
tinued into June. Some acreage was planted on the warmer 
sandland between muck pockets, attempting to insure con- 
tinuous supplies.

LETTUCE 
1969-70 



Florida lettuce production during the 1969-70 sea- 
son was estimated at 392, 000 hundredweight compared to 
414,000 the previous season. The 7, 400 acres planted was 
a 34 percent increase over the previous year. However, 
only 4,400 acres were harvested compared to 4,700 for 
the 1968-69 season. Production was valued at $2, 995, 000. 
Nearly 69 percent of the crop was planted in the Everglades, 
13 percent inNorth Central and 12 percent in West Central 
areas. 

Heavy production was in Romaine lettuce followed 
by Boston, Iceberg, leaf lettuce and Bibb. Consumption 
— ithin the State was heavy, especially Iceberg and Bibb 
varieties. 

Most muckland areas were seeded direct to the 
field and thinned to a normal stand at the proper stage of 
growth. Seeding was underway in the Everglades, Lake 
Placid, Sarasota, and Zellwood in September. Harvest 
got underway in early November with a relative steady 
supply through mid-May. Shipments were highest during 



February and March. Recurring rain in the fall and again 
in the spring resulted inheavy loss of acreage in all areas. 
This was especially true in the Everglades. Although the 
crop is susceptible to extremes in temperature, the Jan- 
uary freeze caused only moderate damage, mostly confined 
to leaf tip burn, even though temperatures were below 
freezing from 7 to 13 hours. 



Supplies from the Everglades were distributed over 
most of the entire season. Zellwood and other North Cen- 
tral areas have two heavy periods of production. The first 
period extended from late November through mid-Decem- 
ber; the second period of production was from mid-April 
through May. A light supply was available during mid- 
season primarily from the warmer sandlands. Iceberg, 
and limited amounts of Boston and Romaine were grown at 
Sanford-Samsula. Light supplies of Romaine were grown 
at Oviedo. Sarasota and Lake Placid grew various vari- 
eties and harvested over an extended period from Decem- 
ber through April.

GREEN PEPPERS 
1969-70 



Florida's green pepper crop was estimated at 
3,065,000 bushels, down 46 percent from the 5,679,000 
bushels produced during the previous season. The 15,700 
acres planted were 2,200 acres less than the 1968-69 
acreage. Prices increased to record highs. The value of 
production at $19, 164, 000 was down only 9 percent from 
that of 1968-69. The Lower East Coast counties - Broward, 
Martin, and Palm Beach East-grew nearly 27 percent of the 
total production. The southwestern counties grew 36 per- 
cent of the total production. Central and North Florida 
grew the balance. . 



Harvest began in late October in the more northern 
areas and in early November in the more southern areas. 
Fall shipments were at a peak in late December. Sub- 
freezing temperatures, with frost, January 10-ll,followed 
by rather heavy mid-January rain, severely damaged plants 
in the Pompano-Martin and Ft. Myers-Immokalee areas. 
Seedbeds in the Central Florida area sustained heavy 
losses. Mosaic began to infest these weakened plants in 
the Pompano-Martin area in late February. By mid-March, 
the problem was serious enough to force some acreage 
into abandonment. 



Seeding began in August and was heavy through 
September in most areas. Central Florida had a small 
transplanted acreage. Spot resetting was active in late 
September to replace those plants damaged by hot weather 
and heavy rains. More heavy rains and strong winds dur- 
ing late October severely damaged plants in the Ft. Myers- 
Immokalee area and more heavily in the Pompano-Martin 
area. Ruffed foliage, leaf burn, some fruit scarring, 
washed beds, and exposed roots resulted from this adverse 
weather. 



Shipments were reduced during February, March 
and April to a very, very, low figure. The 624 carlot 
equivalents reported was only 19 percent of the same 3- 
month period of the previous year. March shipments were 
down to 98 carlots-only 8 percent as much as was shipped 
in March 1969. These low shipments closely approached 
those for February - April 1958. Prices of good pepper 
climbed to record high levels. Supplies increased in early 
May to peak for the crop year from mid-May to mid-June. 
Peak production for spring occurred in late May and early 
June.

POTATOES 
1969-70 



Production of Florida Irish potatoes during the 1970 
winter-spring season at an estimated 5,936,000 hundred- 
weight was down 18 percent from the 1969 crop, but sold 
for $23,055,000, 2-1/2 percent more than the larger 1969 
crop. 

Plantings were in three seasonal groupings: winter; 
spring-Hastings; and spring-" Other". Harvest was over 
a period from mid-December into June. Total acreage 
was 37,700 planted and 36,700 harvested, a reduction of 
10 and 9 percent, respectively. 

The winter acreage was grown in South Florida 
areas with no definite break in the planting period. Ap- 
proximately two-thirds of the crop was planted to red- 
skinned varieties. Dade County, largest producer of win- 
ter potatoes, planted and harvested 7, 700 acres. Recurring 
heavy fall rains deterred planting. Cold winds of January 
8-11 damaged foliage extensively, but left stems and buds 
in fair condition. Recovery was excellent, but wind was 
adversely affective again in early February. Harvest 
started about March 1, and was completed by early May. 
Yields reflected the adverse weather. 

The earliest potatoes harvestedwere in December 
in the Everglades. Mainly "reds" were available. Next 
"reds" available were at Ft. Myers. After these were 



harvested, a very heavy rainfall flooded fields of "whites" 
and ruined beyond salvage about 700 acres in the area. 

Hastings spring crop was planted heavily during 
January and the first half of February primarily to "whites" 
for chipping. An estimated 93 percent of the acreage was 
planted to white-skinned varieties. Late planting and slow 
growth permitted only about 3 percent of the production to 
be harvested in April. However, by June 15 it was practi- 
cally complete. The highest yield in the Tri-County area 
was in Flagler County. The close-in Hastings area prob- 
ably produced a better than normal percentage of the St. 
Johns County tonnage. 

"Other" spring areas were widely scattered. The 
biggest concentration of acreage was in Hillsborough County. 
Harvest was active in April, May and June. About 700 
acres of "whites" and 1,300 "reds" were grown in "other" 
spring areas. 

Prices during the winter season at $5. 02 averaged 
higher than any season of the prior 10-year period,except 
1965 when the average was $5. 50. Hastings sales, FOB 
level, averaged closer to contract chip stock or $3. 40, but 
"other" spring production sold higher, due to more of the 
crop being marketed as table stock "reds". A good portion 
of the "other" springwhites were early and had a stronger 
price structure.

SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1970 



Spinach for processing is grown in the mucklands 
of Orange and Lake Counties. The 1970 planted acreage 
increased to 1,900 from 1,300 the previous year. The 
5, 700 tons useable spinach delivered toplants was 35 per- 
cent less than the previous season. Excessive rains and 
early January sub-freezing temperatures drastically re- 



duced yields with some acreage a complete loss. 

The value per unit is based on useable spinach de- 
livered to the processing plant. Utilization is mainly by 
plants located in the southeastern states.

SQUASH 
1969-70 



Florida growers produced 1,103,000 bushels of 
squash from 8,400 acres harvested. The 9,400 acres 
planted was 1,200 more than the previous year. Because 
of the low yield, 131 bushels per acre, the higher harvested 
acreage produced 20 percent less than the 1968-69 season. 
Total value at $5, 602 , 000 was 11 percent less than the pre- 
vious year's $6,261,000. The average value per bushel of 
$5. 08 was 51 cents more than the previous season average, 
highest in the 1958-59 to 1969-70 period. Shipments were 
recorded for eachmonth throughout the season, September 
1969 to early August 1970. Distribution during December 
reached 14 percent of the total but dropped, because of the 
adverse January weather, until April-May. During this 
two -month period, 40 percentof the total cropwas shipped. 
The southern portion of the State accounted for 68 percent 



of the harvested acreage and 74 percent of the total produc- 
tion. 

Dade County retained its title as the major squash 
producing area in Florida. Yellow crooknecks (YCN) was 
by far the dominant variety planted there. A county total 
of 439,000 bushels, 40 percent of the total crop was har- 
vested in this area. 

Spring seeding started in late February in the Cen- 
tral areas. Harvest began in April in the Plant City area 
and progressed northward as various varieties matured. 
Some out-of-State shipments were recorded as late as early 
August this season. The July-August production was mostly 
for local markets. 

Florida produced acorn, butternut, yellow crook- 
neck, yellow straightneck, white and zucchini varieties.

STRAWBERRIES 
1969-70 



Production of Florida strawberries was off 10 per- 
cent from the previous year. This decreased production 
was from an increased harvested acreage that totaled 1, 800 
acres, nearly 13 percent more than the 1, 600 acres har- 
vested last season. The yield of 781 flats per acre was a 
decrease of nearly 20 percent from the 1968-69 season. 

An estimated 34 percent of the production came 
from the Hillsborough County area and 36 percent came 
from the Lower East Coast. The rest is grown in other 



areas of Central Florida and in North Florida. Shipme./ 
in February accounted for 18. percent of the total and c. 
March,67. 8 percent. 



Transplanting was nearly complete in all areas by 
mid-November. Shipment of berries began in late Dece.ii- 
ber. Supplies were available earlier for local market 
The heaviest production occurred between early March and 
early April. By May, most fields remaining in production 
had berries available on a "U-pick" basis.

TOMATOES 
1969-70 



Florida growers marketed an estimated 11, 595, 000 
equivalent 40-pound crates of fresh tomatoes from 47,400 
harvested acres. The FOB price averaged $4. 89 per 40- 
pound crate. An estimated 1, 623, 000 equivalent 40-pound 
crates, utilized by processors, averaged $0. 66 per crate 
delivered to the canning plant. The total value of the crop 
at $57, 823,000 dropped 29 percent below that of the pre- 
vious year. This is the lowest value for the combined 
fresh and processing tomato crop since the 1962-63 sea- 
son's $54,445,000 crop. The estimated fresh market 
yield of 245 equivalent 40-pound crates is the lowest aver- 
age in any season of the 1958-59 to 1969-70 period. 

During 1969-70 it was virtually impossible to keep 
track of the actual method of harvest of tomatoes grown 
on ground and those grown on stakes, whether picked mature 
green or vine-ripe. Therefore, no attempt was made to 
estimate sales of vine-ripe and mature greens separately. 
Acreage was designated by cultural practice, either staked 
or ground. Fresh market production from staked tomatoes 
amounted to 2, 017, 000 equivalent 40-pound crates. Pro- 
ductionfrom ground tomatoes was 9, 578, 000 equivalent 40- 
pound crates. 



The 1969-70 harvest season got underway in late 
October and early November in all major production areas. 
Excessive soil moisture and strong winds plagued most 
producers during the fall growing period. Throughout the 
year, plant and fruit development was delayed at crucial 
stages. In the fall and winter seasons, many fields of 
ground culture tomatoes were picked only once or twice, 
instead of the normally 3-plus times, because of generally' 
adverse weather. The main source of winter tomatoes was 
from Dade County's ground culture crop and the lower 
coastal areas' staked culture crops. Sub -freezing temper- 
atures January 10-11 and the rains following caused con- 
siderable bloom and fruit drop, and foliage burn. Strong, 
cold winds were recurring and greatly lowered yields. 
Plant failure to recover completely during February and 
March resulted in greatly reduced winter production. 

Spring crop yields were quite low as plants incurred 
heavywater damage during developmental stages. Distri- 
bution of shipments for the months of May and June com- 
bined into the largest percentages of the total in the last 
four years, an indication of the lateness of the season. 

Harvest for processing (canning) continued when 
fresh market harvest terminated.

WATERMELONS 
1969-70 



During the 1970 season, Florida growers marketed 
an estimated 6,888,000 hundredweight of watermelons, 
only 1 percent less than the quantity sold the previous year. 
However, the total value of $13,914,000 was 20 percent 
less than that of 1968-69. Harvested acreage dropped 11 
percent from the previous season. The Ft. Myers-Immok- 
alee area produced only 17 percent of the 1970 crop. This 
area marketed 34 percent during the 1969 season. North 
and Central areas accounted for about 50 percent of the 
planted acreage. Production in these areas jumped from 
36 percent during 1969 to 56 percent in 1970. 

The southwestern area, which normally starts ear- 
liest harvest and captures the highest melon market,was 
set back time after time last season. December planting 
conditions were very favorable and many good stands were 



up by early January. Adverse weather in January, strong 
winds in February, and flooding rains in March caused 
much replanting and delayed maturing of the crop. Har- 
vest which usually starts in April did not begin until early 
May. Even then, the harvest was limited by rains and the 
progressive maturity of melons in central and northern 
areas. 

West Florida planted its crop nearly two weeks late 
because of wet soils. Harvest continued well into July in 
this area. 

Shipments during June and July were 77 percent of 
the total. The generally later harvest period for Florida 
accounts in part for the lower than previous year's average 
price per hundredweight, when nearly 40 percent of the 
production was harvested in April and May.

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT 



Prior to 1969, vegetable and melon production in- 
cluded quantities not sold because of low prices, lack of 
transportation, shortage of labor and other economic 
factors. The Department has changed its definition of pro- 
duction and now reports in yield and production estimates 
only the quantities sold. Listed below are additional quan- 
ities which were abandoned due to economic factors during 
the 1967 through 1970 seasons: 



1. Snap Beans: 1968 Spring - 127, 000 bushels 

2. Celery: 1967 Winter - 703, 000 crates 

Spring - 310,000 crates 
1968 Winter - 157, 000 crates 



There are some crops such as watermelons and to- 
matoes which are seldom completely utilized. These com- 
modities are estimated solely on the basis of quantities 
sold, and no attempt is made to classify unharvested pro- 
duction as economic abandonment. 

Potatoes continue to be estimated on both a total 
production and production actually utilized basis. How- 
ever, in Florida there is seldom economic abandonment 
in potatoes. 

Celery (cont'd) 1968 Spring - 429,000 crates 
1969 Spring - 213,000 crates 

3. Sweet Corn: 1969 Spring - 117,000 crates 

4. Escarole: 1968 Winter - 160, 000 crates
